Forum: etree Subject: Meaning of "cards DIN"?

In the nero show from 2003.11.15, the "Source" info is listed as starting with "matched Oktava MC012 (cards DIN)". What does the "cards DIN" mean? I figure "cards" means the cardioid capsules were used, but, to me, "DIN" means the little 5-pin plugs as used for MIDI and keyboard/mouse cables. What does it mean in a microphone context?

Thanks,
BradM

DIN is a microphone placement configuration technique like ORTF or XY, The DIN technique is similar to ORTF, however the cardioid microphones are 20cm apart and at an angle of 90 degrees.

Thanks. I did a Google search for "ORTF" and, among others, found:

http://recordinglair.com/record/location/micplace.htm

which told me about DIN and the others.

Aloha,

thanks for the link about the different mic configurations!

is there a single site by chance that may show actual pictures of mics using those techniques?
